The reason in this case is that my couchdb code *never sees your
twitter credentials*. It just piggybacks on the session you set up
either through basic auth or b/c you are already logged in. Maybe its
not the best reason, but for now it makes for a good hack.

I agree about federation. Other sources that offer twitter-like apis
ought to be able to feed into this couch app eventually, and with
views you can just wrap them all together easily.
